Join Chris Morocco in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as he makes BA's best lasagna. Why in the world would we tell you to make meatballs, brown them, and then break them into pieces-for a ragù? Sounds crazy, but it’s the best way we found to sear a big batch of meat without overcooking it. This MeatballMethod™ yields deep color (a.k.a. flavor) along with tender meat. If you want to use fresh pasta, go for it, you overachiever you. We also tested the recipe with no-boil noodles, but found they soak up a lot more sauce and the lasagna loses its wonderful ooziness; instead, we recommend the regular dried stuff.heck out the recipe here: www.bonappetit.com/recipe/ba-best-lasagna

Did nobody tell Chris that the right shoulder strap of his apron is askew because he's the kind of guy who'd absolutely freak out if he knew?

im surprised that they didnt add any parm to the top along with grated cheese. get a nice crust on there
You don't add cheese in besciamella, it's not traditional, and you don't put cream in the Ragú, definitely not a traditional take.

I’ve always had a real interest for the more scientific aspects of cooking, like molecular structure etc. I LOOOOVE the way Bon appetite gives you a little of that explanation and understanding. Chris explaining why he adds the oil, then wine, then tomato juice, then tomato 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 YES

do you really need to cook the pasta ? Normally i just use the dried pasta, compose the lasagna and leave it to rest 30 min before putting it in the oven.

I love that Chris’ tag in the video is “Chris Morocco Senior Food Editor/Supertaster”. Can Chris put ‘supertaster’ on his CV? “What did you do at Bon Appetít?” “I was their resident supertaster. Oh, also I was a senior food editor, but I was hired to be their supertaster.” “Sir, you are hired!”

Isn't a Béchamel sauce with cheese added in fact a Mornay sauce? Or is that only when Gruyère is used?

At first, I couldn't stand Chris. He seemed so arrogant and dismissive. I have come to realize I was wrong, dead wrong. I have come to realize what he brings to the channel. So to Chris. I'm a huge fan. Keep doing you.
